  • Purchase balance bikes for our EYFS pupils
  • Complete improvement works to our Trim Trail equipment
  • Install tyre play equipment for active outdoor play
  • Install an ActivALL outdoor activity wall for all pupils to access
  • Purchase additional sporting equipment for whole school use
  • Widen the sporting opportunities of our children by funding a day visit by each class to an external provider, e.g. climbing, sailing.

Impact

Through our continued expansion of the sporting opportunities for our children, facilitated by the Sports Premium funding, we now have solid training squads for both football and netball and they are achieving a greater level of success within the cluster.  Our children also continue to compete in varied sports tournaments.  We have witnessed the emergence of a real enthusiasm for sport across the school, the success of our teams and the increased participation of our children in a multitude of sporting events.
